Introduction

The #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller that People Magazine calls “a poignant, addictive read.”

From #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends with Us comes a novel about family, first love, grief, and betrayal that will touch the hearts of both mothers and daughters.

Morgan Grant and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Clara, would like nothing more than to be nothing alike.

Morgan is determined to prevent her daughter from making the same mistakes she did. By getting pregnant and married way too young, Morgan put her own dreams on hold. Clara doesn’t want to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Her predictable mother doesn’t have a spontaneous bone in her body.

With warring personalities and conflicting goals, Morgan and Clara find it increasingly difficult to coexist. The only person who can bring peace to the household is Chris—Morgan’s husband, Clara’s father, and the family anchor. But that peace is shattered when Chris is involved in a tragic and questionable accident. The heartbreaking and long-lasting consequences will reach far beyond just Morgan and Clara.

While struggling to rebuild everything that crashed around them, Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to, and Clara turns to the one boy she’s been forbidden to see. With each passing day, new secrets, resentment, and misunderstandings make mother and daughter fall further apart. So far apart, it might be impossible for them to ever fall back together.

Editorial Review

An Amazon Best Book of December 2019: Colleen Hoover’s novels frequently straddle the line between heartfelt romance and family drama, offering the best of both worlds. Her latest, Regretting You, again delivers a winner, with a story that’s vulnerable, genuine, and emotionally fulfilling. After she got pregnant at 17 and married her fun-loving boyfriend, Chris, Morgan put her future on hold to raise their daughter—a choice that Morgan has been satisfied with until recently. Now Morgan’s teenage daughter, Clara, likes a boy of dubious background, Morgan’s sister has just had a baby, and Morgan wants to finally do something with her life that involves paying attention to her own dreams for once. Then a fatal accident sends shock waves through the family, tearing at the bonds between Clara and Morgan. Hoover clearly understands the push and pull of even the best mother-daughter relationships, evoking empathy for both women and the mistakes they make as they struggle to reconcile the past and build a new future. —Adrian Liang, Amazon Book Review

This is a very good read. This also has a plot twist but not as big as the others. Sometimes the characters will make you mad!

Overall, an easy read that felt young adult. Not much meat on the bones, but if you’re in the mood for a soap opera, it will satisfy the craving. Just don’t expect too much from the ending.
